Using a SOAP call to UserProfileService, I am able to get the following information for the default user.

User Profile Info - Current User
Is there any way to use the information from the PeoplePicker field to feed the UserProfile?

    Accepted Solution

    PeoplePicker is used to query the domain/profile database and get the user identity resolved before using it anywhere. The web service itself does not hold any data to be used in any location.

    Hence i am not sure if you can use the PeoplePicker to feed userprofile.

    ok...if i scratch peoplepicker, is there any way to have a generic text box that will allow me to enter a userID and have it return the bottom section of information?
